Management Policies

Full Draw Hunt Co. operates under a strict management program with long term goals and success in mind. In order to ensure that these goals are met and exceeded, FDH has a strict 4.5 year old minimum. Instead of simply putting a score out there, we feel this policy does more to ensure that our common 120-140″ two and three year old bucks are at least guaranteed a pass until they are 4.5  years old. There is a $1250 fine for any harvest not meeting FDH requirements. Any whitetail harvest not meeting Full Draw Hunt Co. management requirements is also subject to immediately become property of Full Draw Hunt Company LLC. This policy eliminates the possibility of a hunter planning on and being prepared to pay the fine, regardless of age, antler size and direction from FDH Staff. This policy will be dealt with on a case by case basis.
